Samsung LED TV

by SoCalMoneyPit / May 28, 2009 4:06 PM PDT

I currently have a 61" rear projection tv, and I'm ready to upgrade to a Samsung LED TV. However, I don't want to buy anything smaller than my current tv as it fits the room nicely. Will Samsung offer a 65" LED TV in the near future? If so, how much longer will I have to wait? I've researched the Sharp 65" LCD quite a bit, but I would much rather buy a Samsung if it's available in the near future.

SoCalMoneyPit,

The size for the LED televisions will cap off at 55" this year.

The biggest offering we'll have this year is a 63" plasma.

Let me know if you have any further questions.

Thanks for your feedback. I've heard that with the first generation LED TVs, the LED's do not burn evenly and you can end up with red/green/blue spots on the screen with no-way to balance it. I was told to wait for the second generation LED TVs, as this problem has been fixed. Is there any truth to this rumor? If so, can you tell me when the second generation LED TVs will show up in stores.

Thank you!

SoCalMoneyPit,

I think what you're referring to is RGB LEDs placed next to each other.

It's not a rumor, but in the industry, it's called "thermal drift". It's when RGB LEDs are placed next to each other instead of having a white LED. The color brightness of red reduces over time, and then green, and last to reduce is blue. Now mind you, this happens over time and not what I'd call a major consideration since a lot of this can be adjusted out and doesn't affect the user until near the end of the panel life.

LED Televisions use a white EDGE lighting, so as not to have thermal drift.

I don't believe we have RGB LEDs in our televisions, so until I get a confirmation on that, let's leave it at "maybe". Even the 71 and 81 Series from last year had white LED backlighting. Although, the argument that such a RGB design may offer better color saturation is valid as well.

I've not heard of "red/green/blue spots on the screen with no way to balance it", but if there's a link you can point me to, I'd be happy to explore it.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
